Research Partner Network: Funding Critical Research

Why Become a Research Partner?

The Research Partners Network is a committed and dedicated group of donors who give monthly, working together to have a major impact on ending blindness.

Your monthly contribution provides steady financial support that is at the heart of the Foundation’s long-term commitment to the most promising blindness research.


How it Works

With even a modest monthly gift you will help us on our quest to save and restore sight.

It's easy.
You make a small contribution each month, which is deducted from your credit card or bank account. By spreading your support throughout the year, the Research Partners Network is a really convenient way to fit your donations into your personal budget.

It's effective.
Monthly giving is the most cost-effective way to deliver your support to the Foundation. Plus, your monthly gift will automatically renew your support reducing the amount of mail you will receive from us and putting more of your dollars to work for blindness research.

It's under your control.
You are in the drivers seat regarding your contribution. If, for any reason, you need to change or discontinue your pledge, you may do so, at any time, by emailing our office at, or calling 800-683-5555.
